Babe-RuthlogoBedford Babe Ruth Baseball and Softball would like to welcome all Bedford and Hanscom AFB residents, ages 5-15, interested in playing baseball or softball this spring. We have a few spots open in the older leagues and are still accepting registrations for younger leagues. We’d love for you to join a team!

Player and volunteer signups for all can be found at https://bedfordbaseballsoftball.com/. Games and practices for most leagues are played in Bedford with games primarily during the week (with periodic weekend games) and practices on weekends. Information for each specific league will be available during registration.   The spring season runs from early/mid April through mid June.

Registration fees range from $100/$125 for younger leagues and $150/$175 for older leagues which includes the Town of Bedford Field User Fee. Each player will receive a team hat and game shirt.

Please contact president@bedfordbaseballsoftball.com for financial aid requests, questions, and if you’d like to be added to the BBRBS mailing list. We are also always looking for board members, managers, coaches, and help with events. Team sponsorship opportunities are also available. Let us know if you’d like information. All are welcome!
